Buchlyvie Children and Old Folks Entertainment Committee
This committee has been in existence for at least 80 years. Its main function is to provide a variety of entertainment for young and old. In past years this would typically be for children - a summer outing, a Sports Day, and a Hallowe'en party and for the old folk a summer outing and a Christmas dinner. In order to fund these activities a number of events are run throughout the year eg coffee morning, Gala Day, Hot Dog Hop and Disco, Quiz night, Jumble Sale. The committee currently has twelve members, some of whom have served on the committee for many years. Recent recruitment of some younger members has provided new, fresh ideas in providing activities for youngsters.
Sadly, the enactment of Health and Safety laws has seen a reluctance on the part of adults to take on the responsibility of supervising youngsters on a coach outing, and the school has now taken on this activity. A generous donation to the school at Christmas time from the committee helps to pay for transport for the whole school to the Christmas Pantomime at the Macrobert theatre in Stirling.
The committee welcomes new members so if you feel you would like to contribute to village life please do not hesitate to contact any member of the committee. Anne Stewart, Chairperson 850244, Heather Crane, Treasurer 850054. Liz Mayhew, Secretary 850433.
Buchlyvie United F.C.
The village has had a football club for over 100 years.
The present club was founded in in 1946 when it was proposed that the newly formed club be called Buchlyvie United Football Club, a name it maintains to this day.
The Club has had a few successes over the years winning its only League title in 1982. There have been some Cup successes over the years with the McGregor Ferguson Cup being won 5 times(the most recent being in 2000 which was our last trophy success), the Telfer Cup in 1984, and most notably the Cameron Cup which was last won in 1957.
Matches are played mostly on Saturday & Tuesday nights during the summer months.
New players are always welcome and anyone interested should contact Bryan Morrison (secretary) or Derek McCallion (chairman).
Buchlyvie Golf Society
Buchlyvie Golf Society was formed in 2012, by a group of locals who were keen to play golf on different courses.
The Society has a membership that is made up of local residents or others that have had an association with the village in the past.
The Society has 4 outings a year. Usually, these are in April when the members play for the Buchlyvie Pubs Trophy, June when they play for The Auchentriog Cup & August when they play for a trophy donated by local businessman Adrian Pirie. The fourth outing of the year is played on a team basis and at Aberfoyle when teams compete for the Andy McAllister Memorial Cup, with proceeds raisd onthe day donated to charity.
Further information is available from Evan McLean(Secretary) on 850351.
